Results Are In - Child Passenger Safety Check Up Event is a SUCCESS!

0 Comments

On Saturday, March 26, 2011, firefighters from Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) hosted Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians and trained volunteers from the Child Safety Seat Resource Center to conduct a Child Passenger Safety Clinic at an out-of-service PF&R Fire Station. Each month, fire agencies across Oregon host Child Passenger Safety Clinics at fire stations for the public. Trained technicians and volunteers are available at these clinics to work one-on-one with parents and caregivers to correctly install and inspect child safety seats.  Each seat takes about 30 minutes to install and check for damage, size, and age appropriateness.

At this months clinic, technicians and volunteers checked 85 car seats, distributed 26 car seats to families in need, recycled 9 seats, and raised $620.00 in general donations and car seat sales. 

  

Child Passenger Safety Check Up events are a valuable community resource designed to increase the percent of car seats used correctly, educate participants about safely transporting their children, evaluate all passengers under 13 years of age to make sure they ride safely, and raise awareness of local, community traffic safety efforts.
